How it works:

Capture information: The user submits a short description of the change request and business requirements. The user submits the list of sources, destinations or services that are covered by the change request.

Technical specifications: The firewall specialist reviews and completes the source-destination-port list. Then Change Manager finds the relevant firewalls and checks whether the connectivity is already permitted or not.

Validation: Change Manager analyzes the change request and validates that changes are in compliance with pre-determined network policies.  Change Manager identifies any violations that will occur if the change is implemented as well as the associated risk level.

Review: The user reviews the analysis, formalizes the rule and objects changes, and submits the final change request.

Change verification:  Change Manager determines if the change request has been submitted correctly. The user acknowledges the changes and closes the ticket.
